We’ve all spent a few minutes (or hours, or days) surfing YouTube to watching cool and/or hilarious commercials, right? What you might not know is that they’ve actually got awards for this stuff! And the Oscar of awards is the Cannes Lion trophy– a really prestigious award that goes to the best creative film, film craft, print, outdoor, interactive, radio, design, etc. etc.
The WAG hosted a screening of the Lions awards in December, and it was a huge hit – so popular that they’ve decided to bring it back one last time starting tonight! Head down to the WAG and you can laugh, cry, and get inspired by some really creative brains from all over the world at work.

• March 24 • 2, 7, and 9pm
• March 27, 28 • 2, and 7pm
